Hi mum had to go to Geriatricain on her own today as im not well and couldnt go with her. Fair play she went as i rang to check.
He was good enough to call me back and said the results of the MRI are showing vascular deterioration?? I asked about dementia he said there will be signs but memory ok? I get the impression they are not commiting to dementia yet? Oh I dont know anymore? when I google this i get DEMENTIA either way her brain is deteriorting? so frustrating I will now try and speak to her doc the geriatricain has said hes given her meds for memory and confusion so i will know what these are later.
I am sad but relieved that i was right all along shes at the early stages of vascular dementia due to her uncontrolled diabetes.
Can anyone relate to this? Do they just say dementia until her memory goes??
